Six Risks, Six Opportunities 2016


My biggest concern is the fallout of geopolitical distress.

Joe Kaeser, Siemens

These are the words of the chief executive of Europe’s largest industrial conglomerate in the wake of the November 13 Paris terrorist attacks.

They underscore how an understanding of the world in 2016 will demand insight into its geopolitical underpinnings as much or more as its economic fundamentals.

That is as true for those guiding governments and investment portfolios as for those steering corporations.

Our global network of experts and in-house analysts who produce the Daily Brief have identified six sets of critical risks and opportunities for where macro issues intersect with global economics that will help shape outcomes in what promises to be a volatile and complex 2016.

They cover:

  • Geo-politics
  • Terrorism
  • Cybersecurity
  • Monetary policy
  • Commodity prices
  • The environment

Please join Oxford Analytica experts in discussing these risks and opportunities – and raise those you think will be critical in 2016 that you would like us to address – in a special New Year client conference call.
